STEM – The da Vinci Club

STEM

The “da Vinci Club” is an exciting new service designed to introduce STEM / STEAM to the preschool environment.  This additional program is available to 4 & 5 year old preschool children and can be used on the day they attend or offered to new enrolled students for just this class.

Why is this important? STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

The STEM or STEAM movement has been taking root over the past several years and is surging forward as a positive mode of action to truly meet the needs of a 21st century economy.

What is STEM/STEAM?
STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. STEAM is important because it pervades every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges, but also tackles the challenges of changing global weather and environmentally-friendly changes to our home. Mathematics is in every occupation, every activity we do in our lives. By exposing students to STEAM and giving them opportunities to explore STEAM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and hopefully pursue a job in a STEAM field.
